The EFF may ditch the DA for the ANC if the governing party were to put a solid offer on the table.

News24 reported that EFF leader Julius Malema said that the party can no longer guarantee that it will vote with the DA.

Malema added that if the ANC put a solid proposal on the table, the EFF would vote for it.

His comments came after the EFF's boycott of municipal council meetings in DA-led metros, which was sparked by the removal of Nelson Mandela Bay deputy mayor, Mongameli Bobani.

"We are not in a coalition with the DA, we have never been in a coalition with the DA," said Malema.

"You ill-treat our people, you disrespect them, you look down on them because you think you are a super political party, we will teach you a lesson... We don't care about these metros; whether the ANC takes them, whether the DA takes them, it's none of our business."
